Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osbourne, the founders of Public School New York, have been the leading suppliers of New York City-based fashion for years now. In fact, PSNY has become somewhat of a fashion staple for New Yorkers ever since the brand was established back in 2008. Ever since, PSNY has combined upscale and urban every time they have worked on an all-Black rendition of a basketball sneaker. This month, Public School New York is celebrating its 10th anniversary of being at the core of New York fashion. This celebration actually coincided with the release of a Jordan Brand x PSNY Capsule Collection that includes Air Jordan 15 colorways.
Apart from the two colorways of the Air Jordan 15, which are a part of the Jordan Brand x PSNY Capsule Collection, it turns out that another unconventional and unexpected variation was also designed. This particular variation was seen during PSNY’s New York Fashion Week runway show and unlike the other two iterations of the regular Air Jordan 15 silhouette; it actually looks like a boot. In fact, this variation was in the form of a knee-high boot with a zipper running down from the top down to its heels at the back. Its leather uppers were dressed up entirely in Black, with Red- and White-colored accents.
Both the Air Jordan 15 iterations included in the Jordan Brand x PSNY Capsule Collection feature a different, varying construction. The “Black” iteration features uppers made up of a combination of nubuck and suede. The “Olive” iteration features woven uppers. Apart from their overall construction, they are actually quite similar, such as the “PSNY” branding engraved into their rubberized heel wraps and their sculpted rubber midsoles with a herringbone pattern beneath the outsoles. Additionally, the tongue tabs of both iterations also have “WNL” printed over them, which stands for “Winner Never Lose.”
These two sneakers from the Jordan Brand x PSNY Capsule Collection have already joined the most recent Jordan releases 2017. While the stocks may not have lasted, the suede PSNY x Air Jordan 15 and the woven PSNY x Air Jordan 15 might still be available for $225 and $190, respectively.
